Giving Societies

In 2014, Bear Trust launched our Giving Societies as a way to help ensure the future of wild bears.

The Ursus Society offers four benefactor levels, enabling tax-deductible, donor-directed gifts ranging from $250 to $5,000 per year. Donations can be made in annual installments or in a lump sum. Members may “upgrade” their benefactor level at any time and can direct their contributions to Bear Trust International mission areas of interest. Learn more




The Spirit Bear Society is Bear Trust International’s premier giving society. Its members are donors of $100,000 or more, with gifts that can be made in a lump sum or over a 10-year commitment. Learn more
